Yes, I would definately recommend consumer marine. During any of the boat shows that they participate in, they give good discounts, even to online customers. Just be sure to check their site for their show schedule and then call them and request "boat show pricing" for your item. I see that they are in a show starting this weekend.

Ditto on www.consumersmarine.com Also no problem with www.GPSdiscounts.com As Thom once said: "Make a list; go to the show! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

I just ordered electronics from Dave's Marine and D & B Marine online and both were excellent with responding to questions, shipping very quickly, and they both have great pricing.

Dave's Marine is at www.brokenlegdave.com and he does package quotes. D & B Marine is www.dbmarine.com.
In total, I spent $1700 for:

(2) Shakespeare 4187 SS Ratchet Antenna Mounts
(1) Ritchie D-55 Compass
(1) Shakespeare 5225-XT Antenna
(1) Standard Intrepid + VHF
(1) Furuno LS 6100 Fishfinder
(1) Multi-Transducer, Transom Mount
(1) Garmin BlueChart MUS0008R Char-Jack
(1) Garmin 182 Color GPS/Chartplotter
